    ON THE SUBJECT OF SELF-DETERMINATION, MR STEVENSON SAID: SOF STARTS: "ALL MAY BE QUIET NOW IN ANGOLA, BUT LITTLE HAS HAPPENED TO AVERT THE DANGER OF A FURTHER ALARMING TRAGEDY AT SOME FUTURE TIME. AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED TO LESSEN THE DUTY OF THIS ASSEMBLY TO FURTHER A JUST AND A PEACEFUL SOLUTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CHARTER. WHAT THE DETAILS OF THAT SOLUTION OUGHT TO BE IS NOT THE ISSUE, BUT THE BROAD CHARACTER OF THE SOLUTION SHOULD BE DETERMINED BY THE FORCE OF HISTORY AND BY THE CHARTER WHICH IS OUR COMMON STANDARD. THIS IS THE PRINCIPLE OF SELF-DETERMINATION. IN THE FIRST MEETING ON THIS SUBJECT LAST WINTER, I EMPHASISED THE BELIEF OF THE UNITED STATES THAT IT WAS IMPERATIVE FOR PORTUGAL TO SPEED UP THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL ADVANCEMENT OF THE INHABITANTS OF ANGOLA TOWARDS FULL SELF-DETERMINATION. THAT THAT IS THE DUTY OF PORTUGAL; THAT THAT IS THE RIGHT OF THE ANGOLANS, REMAINS THE UNCHANGED VIEW OF MY GOVERNMENT."

    Background: MR. ADLAI STEVENSON, UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS, ADDRESSING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY'S DEBATE ON THE SITUATION IN PORTUGUESE ANGOLA, JAN 26, CALLED ON PORTUGAL TO SPEED UP STEPS TO ALLOW THE PEOPLE OF THE TERRITORY TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN FUTURE. THIS, HE SAID, WAS PORTUGAL'S DUTY, AND IT WAS THE DUTY OF BOTH THE ASSEMBLY AND PORTUGAL TO SEEK PEACEFUL MEANS TO AVOID FURTHER CONFLICT.

    PORTUGAL SHOULD TAKE STEPS IN ANGOLA IN ACCORD WITH THE "THREE GREAT PRINCIPLES" OF THE U.N. CHARTER, SAID MR. STEVENSON. THESE PRINCIPLES, HE SAID, WERE SELF-DETERMINATION, THE DUTY OF THE ASSEMBLY TO PROPOSE PEACEFUL MEANS FOR AVOIDING FURTHER CONFLICT, AND THE IDEAL OF PEACEFUL COOPERATION AMONG EQUALS FOR THE COMMON GOOD.
